About the PACT Level 1 Training
Attend Level 1 training in-person in 2020 in Berkeley, Boulder, Los Angeles, or Seattle.
In PACT Level 1, you will learn the fundamentals of the PACT methodology.
Based on the latest research in neuroscience, attachment theory, and the biology of human arousal, you’ll learn PACT’s practical, effective, mind-body approach to couple therapy.
You’ll understand PACT’s therapeutic stance of secure-functioning and gain new skills and interventions to lead even your most challenging couples toward secure-functioning relationships.
When you successfully complete this training, you can identify yourself as a PACT Level 1 clinician/therapist, indicating a strong foundation in the skills and principles of PACT.
The training is intended for licensed and pre-licensed marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists.
To qualify for attendance in the PACT training, a pre-licensed clinician must (a) be in the final year of graduate school, (b) actively see clients as a supervisee and/or intern, and (c) have a supervisor’s approval to attend the training.
